…durch Regen und durch Matsch….
That’s the song we learned at our first musical playschool day in Zurich. It’s a song for a rainy day (as it was raining cats and dogs on that day) and it has six lines.
First, the lady who runs the course sang it twice so we could remember the lyrics.
Then we sang it 3 times to learn it.
Then we sang it 4 times and made rain sounds on the tambourin.
Then we sang it 3 times and clapped the hands of the babies together.
Then she played it 3 times with her cd player (instrumental version).
Followed by 3 times singing version.
Then we sang it 4 times and jumped to it in a circle.
Followed by 2 more times with more accentuated jumps.
Then we sang it 3 times and danced into the middle of the circle.
Afterwards she played it 2 times on a xylophone (I sang to it, just in case).
And she played it two times on bells (then the babies started to put the bells into their mouths).
And she played it 3 times on the keyboard (again, I think we were supposed to sing).
After that, half an hour was over!
If the little one can’t sing this song by the end of this summer, she probably won’t follow a musical career…
Tomorrow morning, we’ll get up at 5:30am and start our journey to Spiekeroog (North Sea) to attend the wedding of our friends. We’ll stay there for a week. I checked the weather forecast today: apparently our rain song was successful! Strong gusts of wind and heavy rain showers for the next days……
